Blustery fall days make us want to eat something that warms the soul, and nothing says warm and cozy like beef stew. This time, we give the slow cooker a rest and let the Dutch oven do the work. Throw a few ingredients into a pot and the kitchen will soon be toasty and smell delicious as this hearty meal bubbles away on the stove.
A good old-fashioned beef stew is delicious, but we love a more rustic take on the traditional recipe. Here’s how we like to put a little twist on it: skip the carrots and celery for fire-roasted red peppers, and instead of potatoes to “thicken” everything up, we add something completely different – cream of mushroom soup. Changing up the classic ingredients with the peppers and creamy soup really offers a deliciously new pop of flavor. C’mon…can you think of a better way to end a fall day?!? Grab a slice of crusty bread and enjoy!
